The food was delicious we each got a different entree to try and it was hard to choose between them. The stand out was the duck with carrots and vegetables in a spicy coconut curry sauce. It was a Friday night and as it got later the place was full and many to go bags were picked up in the 2 hours we were there which may have been why service got slower as the place got busy. Main course arrived after appetizers bu additional water cocktail orders were long in arriving. We would all go back and have the duck!

Seriously the best Thai food I've had in SF so far, and it's on par with the best Thai in LA/LBC/OC. Highly recommend.

I live local and am really regretting not going here sooner. I want to eat everything on the menu. The signature dishes are so good. Specifically the plummy duck.

Service was not great but they were clearly very understaffed on Valentine's Day, didn't bother us. Definitely going back soon.

I didn't book this restaurant or eat there. I booked a different restaurant that was closed, but not according to OpenTable

I was pleasantly surprised by the restaurant. It was a delightful experience and the food was absolutely delicious. The service was also simply amazing. The 3 of us started with the Lychee Martini and it was delicious. I had the lunch special which was extremely reasonable. I ordered the yellow curry with chicken and it came with a lovely soup, crispy egg rolls and a great salad. Colleagues ordered the Yum Beef salad that was delicious and crispy fish fillet. Everything was exceptional. Not sure why I had never been there before. It was very enjoyable and I plan to return. I have been telling everyone in my network.

Service could be faster and the food needs more options on the menu.

It was great! The only thing I would mention is that even though the staff did a wonderful job accomodating us, I would say they were actually "understaffed", hence some long waits along the way. But friendly and like said, the food was great. Would definitely both recommend and go back to.

Very normal Thai. The service was great and portions generous but it was nothing special.

We had a birthday party for 27 people at Krua Thai. The staff managed the reservation incredibly well, even adjusting the table settings at the last minute as plans evolved. Everyone there commented on the quality of the food, the service, and how enjoyable the setting was. The staff was amazingly accommodating, even with such a large group. They let nus bring our own cake and served it for us in style. I'd go back!

Mediocre food with little flavor. So many better other options around the neighborhood.

Probably the worst Thai food I've ever had. Menus were dirty and my plate was dirty. My instinct was to walk out once I saw the dirty plate, and I wish we had. The food was bland even though my curry was indicated on the menu as 3-star spicy. Date night was ruined by this crappy restaurant.

The food was well prepared and all seemed fresh. My wife noted that the prawns were fresh and definitely not overlooked. Good flavors and friendly staff.

The food was tasty, and the Sangria came in a cute wine glass. The service was a bit slow, I will try again maybe in the future to see if they were just understaffed that day.

Great Thai food here and being able to reserve on Open Table was a major convenience. This was a get together of 6 friends, a couple of whom had said they might be delayed in getting there. I knew from having dined here previously that, if one or more of the group are going to be delayed, the managers/owners here are very accommodating in allowing the rest of us to be seated at our table.
We were there on a Tuesday night, and I hadn't realized in advance that they had a special offer of 50% off all Wine and Beer. That was a very nice surprise and coupled with their already reasonably priced food it made for extremely good value.
